    I think a "Fair" rating is actually very generous. My French toast was edible, but my colleague who ordered pancakes said it tasted strangely sour and she could not eat it. Service was friendly but very slow, as there is only one server for the entire restaurant. No hostess either. We waited standing around, then for the water, then for him to take the order, etc. Ambiance--light was too bright, even for breakfast, and it was really hot. When we asked the server if the thermostat can be adjusted, he pointed to it and said it's locked and he didn't have the key! I felt badly for the server. I would not recommend this restaurant, let alone the hotel.

    A gift certificate given by a friend last Christmas was the main reason-Though I knew I would enjoy time with a lunch partner, moreso than bringing my husband. I have always liked The Burnsley (I was the Manager of the DMCVB Visitor Information Center for 20 years) I volunteer at the Denver Firefighters Museum, so provide a wealth of visitor info) when I am "on duty" - We both enjoyed our choices, and the quiet of the dining room-We wanted to take time to chat and enjoy our meal--Thank you so much!

    The Burnsley Hotel is a very old and classy hotel and their Living Room has that same feel to it. It's very romantic and dimly lit, so very nice for a date. The frommage plate was amazing and so was the bread. The lavendar sauce for the pork tenderloins was awesome as well. Our waitress was very attentive but also gave us plenty of room to eat dinner undisturbed. We enjoyed this place very much!

    This is the second time we've dined at the Burnsley and we all remembered liking it so well the first time. This time was just as good. e tried out the new menu. Everything tasted good and our waitress was so on top of everything! The best thing about The Burnsley is how adult and quiet it was. No loud, thumping sounds so that conversation is impossible; no crooner who is louder than your best friend next to you. This was quiet heaven with good food to boot!

    My dad stayed at the Burnsley on his 2-day stay in Denver, when he, we 2, & my son & gf were going to see "Wicked" May 4. There's a free shuttle from the rest. to the theater & back, + free pkrng. for those dining/seeing DCPA show. So with the freebies outta da way: food was obviously pre-made (small, odd menu). We went in plenty of time to eat & get to show, but food was SO s l o w in arriving, we almost didn't make it. While it wasn't *bad* food, it wasn't as good as the price suggested, and as stated, definitely pre-fab. We prob. won't be back, as the bartender was ALSO the food server, and was MUCH more interested in his watering-hole locals, preferring to chat up those folks instead of waiting on those spending $$$ on food & wine.

    I really enjoyed the Burnsley. I didn't really know what to expect. The food was wonderful! You could cut the steak with a bitter knife. I had brie and mushroom risotto cakes. They were inspired. We had a delightful server. The live Jazz in the lounge really set the mood. I'd love to see a better wine list. It was pretty lack luster. We will definitely be back!

    We went for resaurant week, and I was less than impressed. The servers were running around crazy and took forever to get back to you. The food was mediocre and seemed like most of it came from a box. The lobster bisque was cold and there was no lobster...the teak was cooked to temp and a good size for a filet, the asparagus was cooked well but the potatoes had no flavor/seasoning at all. The banans foster was like ice cream soup with burnt bananas in it. The brownie was alright, but again seemed like it came from a box and they just threw marishino cherries on it. There was no imagination with the food. I could have made this meal at home myself for half the price. The band was cool though and a nice atmosphere..maybe just go for drinks...

    We have eaten at the Burnsley several times. It has always been a very "leisurely" experience. Some might say the service is slow but we go expecting a relaxed evening. If you are in a hurry, I would suggest somewhere else. The steaks were excellent. Sunday brunch is also enjoyable.

    This was a great experience right from the start. The hostess was very friendly, and the server was impressive with her knowledge of the hotels history. She also provided an excellent recommendation for a wine selection. Finally the food was outstanding! Delicious and presented very well. Also, perfect portion sizes.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 2/25/2012
    enjoyed my 5280 experience. I have been to your property before and have a friend who stays with you often. However, drinks at dinner was severely overprice given their size and liquor brand. Thus I was stunned to get 9.00 charge for a martini that I would have been charged no more than $4.75 at any other hotel lounge for that size of drink. The same with jack and coke and margarita. The bottle of wine was great but should have cost no more than $21.00. Take this information from a very well traveled customer The dinner value was excellent along with the quality of the meal.

    Dined on 2/24/2012
    Dined at 7:30 on a Friday night, expecting a leisurely meal over wine. Half-way through our meal the server informed us the dining room was closing at 9 pm, and she brought our check at 8:45 while I was still eating my meal. Looking at the check, I discovered she had misled us to believe a $12 side dish was included with an entree. She also added on the bill a 20% tip for herself, ran my card, and left before we did. The wine and our crab cakes appetizer were good, but entrees and side dish were not very good and were overpriced. We will not be back.

    Quiet and comfortable, but lacks the pizzaz of a top tier restaurant. No tablecloths! That's a big turn off for me. Relatively small menu, but enough variety to satisfy most clients. Sort of feels like a typical hotel restaurant despite the fact that its food and service are otherwise very good. Simply adding white tablecloths would dramatically improve the ambiance.

    We left after being told they would not be able to wait on us after 15 minutes. Supposedly they were "slammed", but the restaurant was empty. 2 table ahead of us finally got their water and order taken after being there much longer than us. Won't be going back. I can find spendy food at other places that take care of me.

    There was a live piano player and I was the only person in the lounge at 4pm on a Thursday. I would say this place is mainly for older people, meaning that all ten customers who arrived later around 5pm were all over the age of 60. I'm in my 30's and while the food was great and only 10 blocks away from where I live, I don't think I'll be coming back for happy hour. The service was great and you can get 6 tapas for only $13 during happy hour which is almost too much food for two people. However, it was a snooze-fest and I couldn't wait to get out of there.

Food was well prepared, nicely presented, and tasty. sauces added just the right touch. Limited altough satisfactory wine list. A great spot for a quiet evening of good food and conversation.

    when we went to the lounge, it was very noisy and could not hear ourselves talk. not only that, we ordered drinks, appetizers, and dinner. we ask the bar tender, Kimberly, for some bread. she brought us pita bread. when we got the bill she charged us a #1.50 for the pita bread. i ask her about it and she said the cook said to charge us for it. the menu said that bread was included with the dinner why should have to pay for bread when we ordered dinner. that made me really mad and pretty ridiculous for the bar tender to even worry about the bread charge. it may be silly to complain about paying for the bread, but in my opinion, it's the principle of the thing.

    We always seem to go to the Burnsley for special occasions. In this instance it was a birthday dinner. The food is always consistently excellent. The restaurant is pleasantly quiet and rarely busy so its a great place to get in quickly. The menu has gone ala carte and is smaller than before. However there are plenty of great meal choices. I had the lamb lollipops which were excellent. My dinner date had the filet mignon which was done to perfection. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

    After a good experience dining in the Burnsley's main dining room two years ago, we looked forward to using our restaurant.com certificate to return. Unfortunately, this visit was nothing like the first. Turned out that Mon-Thurs dinner is only served in the lounge, where we took a corner table. The holiday music (Sirius radio, complete with commercials) was blaringly loud. Our coupon applied only to entrees so we chose buffalo meatloaf ($18) & risotto cake w/ salad ($19). The food took a long time to arrive & was obviously prepared leftovers that were microwaved. There was a gravy skin on my meatloaf & my wife's salad was HOT! An awful, expensive meal w/ no sides & the waitress couldn't even find bread—they should be ashamed of themselves.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008VIP
    Dined on 10/13/2011
    The Burnsley Hotel is "historic," which here is a euphemism for old. The decor needed serious updating, but if you're open minded, it's one of those diamonds in the rough, where you maybe one of two tables in the whole place, enjoying the delicious food all to yourself. You could imagine yourself here in it's heyday where the now faded magenta velvet lined booths were likely filled with lively diners listening to the piano. Not the spot for a romantic dinner, but if you want a good meal at a reasonable price minus the ambiance, it's worth a try. The 3 course prix fixe for $45 with a salad, side and main entree was a great deal.
